“Don't miss this little jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Find any excuse to attend some presentation here. Tucked away in an unassuming downtown corner sits this little theater, built in 1926 as a silent movie palace, it has been beautifully restored and is now a beacon of the South Florida Arts community. You will find presentations from movies, to operas, to concerts, to meetings, pick one and gape at the ceiling :)

“Miami International Film Fest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Went for the Miami International Film Fest for a showing of Dark Blood, the theater is simply gorgeous, worth going just to see it. Historical building in the heart of Downtown Miami, very beautiful.

“Beautiful old theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went to see Otmar Liebert in this gorgeous old structure originally called the Olympia Theater in the heart of downtown Miami steps from Bayside Park. Be sure to eat before you arrive since there are mostly fast food joints nearby. Acoustics are great and the seats comfortable. The interior is clean, freshly painted and beautiful.

“When Movie Theaters were "Palaces"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Gusman/Olympia is a restored movie theater that dates back to 1926.Now, primarily a venue for live performances, it is worth while to allow some time to take in and appreciate the lavish architectural detail
